Urban Fantasy


Newly divorced Das MacDermott longs for a fresh start. As he packs up and prepares to move out of the city, he spots a young woman being held at gunpoint by three men. Despite being outnumbered and unarmed, Das does his best to intervene. Once liberated, the victim seems oddly ungrateful, but on an apparent whim decides to join Das in his new life in rural Ontario. Aislinn, as she is called, returns the favour; with her encouragement and support, his start-up photography business takes off, and more importantly, Das is saved from loneliness and self-doubt.

Das, however, is never quite able to fully dismiss the contrary aspects of Aislinn’s nature, and is strictly forbidden from asking about Aislinn’s past. All seems too good to be true, and indeed it is. Aislinn’s unusual talents and odd Behaviour, unbeknownst to Das, come from her demigod status. Aislinn is half-Sidhe, daughter of Fionvarra, Ireland’s fairy king, and a human woman. Sidhe wars have so disrupted the mortal world that Aislinn has joined with other immortals in an effort to permanently separate it from Tir N’a Nog, the fairy realm.

Born in ancient Ireland, Aislinn spends millennia as the plaything of the cruel and narcissistic gods. The pain of being neither human nor Sidhe is offset by her relationship to the Fir Bolg, another race of fair folk who take pity on her lonely state; and the refuge she takes in being Das’s lover and protector. As Das comes to accept the possibility that Aislinn belongs to a supernatural world, he discovers that the two worlds are set to collide in a way that may mean the destruction of all humanity.

I took one last look around the apartment. Not perfect, but it would do. I checked for the third time to make sure I didn’t forget anything. Everything I owned, packed into boxes, waiting to start over.
I lifted the first box from the small stack beside the door and carried it outside the apartment and down the steps. I placed it in the trunk of my car, half-closing it gently so it wouldn’t latch. As I turned to go back for the next box, a metallic thud sounded from nearby. Cats in the alley again. I started up the steps. Another crash. I hesitated. The neighbourhood had been having trouble with raccoons spreading garbage all over, but they didn’t usually appear in daylight. What do I care? I don’t live here anymore. I continued up the stairs.
With my hand on the doorknob, I hesitated again. I checked my watch. Already past four. The cleaning had taken longer than anticipated and I risked getting stuck in rush-hour traffic. Damn. I ran down the steps.
I walked the half-block to the alley and rounded the corner. What I saw there made me stop dead. A jolt passed through my whole body, as if the air were electrically charged.
Three men and a teenage girl. One man held the girl by the waist, both of her arms pinned behind her back, her feet dangling a few centimetres off the ground. The girl kicked out with her feet so the two men facing her had to stand out of reach. Still, they both held guns, one of which was pointed at her head. It had no effect on her thrashing.
I flattened myself against the wall, out of their sight. I reached toward my back pocket and remembered my cellphone was in the car. My mind raced. Three of them, at least two armed. They could kill the girl before I even got close, and then they would kill me. The Boy Scouts never prepared me for this.
I peered around the corner into the alley. The one with his gun at the girl’s head leaned closer and spoke to her. Whatever he said upset her and she spit in his face.
I raced into the alley hollering, “Let her go!” and immediately wondered what the hell I was doing.
The man smashed his gun into the side of the girl’s face. The other armed man aimed his gun at my chest. I slowed my walk. For some reason, my feet wouldn’t obey the impulse to hurl myself at the ground. I raised my arms. “Let her go—she’s just a child.”
The man holding the girl tightened his grip and the other two approached me. I willed my legs not to shake. They continued with their forward momentum, still refusing to obey my better sense. The first man raised his gun and smashed it into my skull. He slammed his other fist into my belly. When I crumpled to the ground, both men kicked me. I felt another blow to the head. I heard a gunshot; through the slits of my eyelids, I saw a brilliant flash of light. Just before losing consciousness, I had the vague idea that I was supposed to go toward the light.
Whispering. Dozens, maybe hundreds, of voices, but I couldn’t make out any words. They spoke very fast, as if someone had sped up a tape recording. I wondered if they were my loved ones waiting for me. I couldn’t see the light anymore and wondered if maybe the light didn’t want me.
I became aware of a throbbing in my head and felt the hard asphalt beneath me. Someone cradled my head. Waves of heat passed through my temples and rippled inside my skull. My scalp prickled. The throbbing diminished. Strong hands shook me. I feigned unconsciousness, not wanting to wake up to another beating.
The hands shook me again. I opened my eyes and looked straight into those of the young girl. She wore a long, white dress, her black hair falling in tousled waves past her shoulders to her hips. She seemed to radiate light. My first thought was that we were both dead and I’d made it to heaven after all. Maybe you get points for stupidity in the service of others.
Seeing her up close, it was clear I had underestimated her age by several years. Though small, she was clearly a young woman—closer to eighteen than fourteen, possibly even older. Her dress was sheer, showing every curve of her body. My immediate visceral reaction was not something I expected to feel in heaven. Then the throbbing in my head returned, equally unexpected. As my senses cleared, I noted the scent of garbage mixed with car exhaust. I heard horns honking in the distance and shouts from the street. So, not dead, then. When I tried to sit up, pain in my head forced me back down.
With uncanny strength, the girl pulled me to a sitting position and looked me square in the eye. She squatted on her heels. Any glow I thought I had seen disappeared. Her face muscles tensed, her mouth drew tight. I couldn’t quite read the emotion, but I didn’t get the impression she was concerned for my well-being.
“You’re alive.” My voice sounded thin. “I heard a shot. I thought …”
“He missed,” she said. “And you ought not to have interfered.”
Ought not … who talks like that? “Those guys were going to kill you.”
She folded her arms across her chest. “I was in no danger. I was fully in control until you happened by. Do your police officers not tell you never to antagonize an armed intruder?” She sighed. “If it had been anyone other than me, you would be dead right now. You really ought to take more care.” She stood and turned to leave.

Tethered Cover

Title: Tethered

Author: Brandi Leigh Hall

New Adult/Upper Young Adult Urban Fantasy

What if the life you were born into, was never really yours to begin with?

I’ve never felt normal in my own skin. Like an oversized pair of UGG boots, nothing about my life fits the way it should. At least, not the way I’d like it to. I was born a Witch, with an ability I despise. And I’d do anything to give it back. But how do you return a “gift” that came with no card? I learned long ago—visions are one thing—you can never send back.

For six years, I’ve been an in-the-closet Seer, desperate to escape the murderous vision that ruined my childhood, and the Wiccan family I tore apart in the process. But I can no longer deny who I am.
Something terrible awaits those I love. Something big.

I’ve only seen bits and pieces, but I know I’m meant to move back home to save them. And who’s the tall, dark and delicious mystery guy in this vision with my family? He kisses me with more tenderness than I’ve ever known, yet I can’t tell how he makes me feel. Are we in love, or is it just a physical thing?

All I know is, I have to meet him. And I have to protect my family.
No more hiding from the truth. The time has come to face the ones I left behind. It’s time my visions of the future—go head-on—with the demons from my past.

About Brandi Leigh Hall


Brandi lives in central Pennsylvania with her fur-ball cats (Onyx and Klepto), where she spends most of her time attached to her laptops, reading books, appeasing her sweet tooth, and watching TV for motivation.

Growing up in a haunted house inspired Brandi’s fascination with the paranormal, so it only made sense that she’d write Urban Fantasy books for both teens and adults. Brandi hasn’t been lucky enough to meet her soul mate (yet), so she writes paranormal tales of those who have. Her stories combine magical elements with real-life issues, strong female characters, semi-old fashioned men and family values, woven together and told from an emotional, first-person perspective. She enjoys writing sweet stories that teach girls it’s okay to speak your mind and be independent, career-driven, and not worry about fitting in to society’s mold.

 In addition to the BirthRight Novels, she also has four additional adventures she’ll be writing over the next few years, so stay-tuned.

Moonlight Destiny by Rebecca Foote tour and Review

Moonlight Destiny
Author: Rebecca Foote
Release Date: 
October 4th 2013
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal,

Alyssa Shaw has given up trying to find the perfect man, until she meets Derek Rendall. He's gorgeous and mysterious, seeming to be a fantasy come to life. Alyssa can't get enough of him and believes her luck has finally changed.

Unfortunately Derek is not who he seems, but something else straight out of her darkest nightmares. As their unlikely relationship blooms into a passionate bond, forces are determined to tear them apart. Alyssa must ask herself what she is willing to do for love.


Werewolves have always captured most of my attention and this novel is no exception to the rule. The wolves portrayed in this book very much relate to most other werewolf stories I have read; this including their overall very attractive looks that each wolf has when in human form.

The characters that the story revolves around are very good when together, as they tend to connect very well with one another; this also has the affect to make me jealous of the relationship they seem to have. When the main female character is alone though, I can honestly say that she is my least favorite character. Alyssa does have moments where it shows her good and bad points, but in the end, I just can't seem to connect with her character. The male protagonist, Derek, immediately grabbed my attention from the point he was introduced and to the very end of the book. While being a very attractive werewolf does give him brownie points in my book, his strength and reliable nature is what really made the character stand out to me.

This story is full of mysteries and adventures that I am sure will catch most readers' attention. Just to add I love the book cover a lot.

3 out of 5 Howling Wolves

“Hey, look who’s here.” Jane’s enthusiasm made her giddy. I glanced over and noticed two guys from campus we’d recently met, Craig and Danny. They were brothers and it showed because they both had the same jet black hair and were similar in height and muscular build. Craig and Danny were playing pool with a couple of friends.  Craig spied us and flashed a cute smile our way.

“Hey, did I tell you that Craig called me?” Jane gawked at them openly as she twisted a blonde lock of hair.

“I guess it slipped your mind. Did you know they were going to be here tonight?” I teased. 

A sheepish grin spread across her face. “Yeah, Craig said they’d be here tonight. Actually, I’ve spoken to him a few times. He’s really nice. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you about him calling before, but I thought you wouldn’t be interested. I figured it was the last thing you’d want to hear about with everything you’ve been through lately.”

“You should have told me. There’s no reason for you not to…I don’t mind.”

“Let’s go talk to them,” she urged.  As we approached, their eyes roamed all over us and I felt like a piece of meat at the butcher's.

“Hey, guys!”

“Hey. It’s good to see you. Damn, you girls are the finest things in here,” Craig mused.

“No doubt,” Danny chimed in. The two other guys playing pool with them took notice and walked over. They were both from the big, dark, and muscular variety—whoa!  One stood a little taller than the rest. I glanced at him briefly, trying not to make my observation obvious. I couldn’t help but notice how handsome he was.

I think Jane couldn’t stop smiling at them even if she wanted to. Her favorite type of attention was full-on admiration. 

“Stop drooling, Craig, and introduce us,” insisted the one with dark brown wavy hair and blue eyes.

Craig glanced at us, appearing a little embarrassed, and flashed a scowl at his friend. When he introduced us, the way he said our names sounded exotic and I felt a little self-conscious.

“This ugly guy next to me is Jack Fallon.” He nudged Jack hard on the shoulder. Jack winked at us. I imagine he did well with the ladies because he was anything but ugly. Craig straightened up and stopped acting silly to introduced his next friend. “And he’s Derek Rendall.”  Derek took one step forward and smiled warmly. I noticed his deep green eyes as the light caught them. His dark brown hair and strong jawline complemented his masculine features.  Be still my heart.

“Nice to meet you,” I stammered and felt stupid. What’s wrong with me?

“Same,” Jane said mischievously.

I tried not to laugh at Jane’s enthusiasm, but I couldn’t blame her.  These guys were handsome and the one named Derek…well, he was flat out gorgeous.  I was glad no one here was a mind reader and hoped that my body language wasn’t giving too much away.  I’m by no means a tramp, but I had to admit these guys were hot. They must have spent a little extra time swimming in the handsome end of the DNA pool.

"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out alive.

I live in the City of Alchemy and Medicine, North Carolina. I write about people doing fantastical things in magical worlds. Sometimes they fall for each other and make sacrifices for their friends. Oh, and sometimes they love music and nature too. I live with my two sons,a guinea pig, a cat, and two dogs. Now that I have completed my MFA in creative writing, I find that I have a little extra time to play CLUE more often. I live in an L-shaped house dedicated to my grandmother. It has a secret library complete with fairies, venetian plastered walls, and a desk made out of clear blue glass.
